OOOOWWW-D OVR race
It has been a couple of weeks since the last post. I have not made any
more changes to the car, although some are scheduled for this week.
It was 98 and humid on Sunday and there were 96 other crazy people who
decided to race in Columbus. Robert Phillips drove down from Akron and
we finally got to meet. He is a real nice guy. Guess what...we talked
Most of the cars were lapping in the 41 to 47 second bracket. Robert
ran times in the high 41s in his D Street Prepared 4000ss. There were
only about a dozen cars capable of breaking the 40 second
barrier...mainly new z28s, corvettes, mustangs, and modified cars. Oh
yeah, and my OOOOWWW-D. Much to everyone's surprise, I turned a fast
lap of 39.3 in my little old H stock car. IT WAS GREAT!!!
The car ran flawlessly with 48 lbs. in the front tires and 46 in the
rear. Unfortunately, I corded another front tire just like the last
time. I have already put in my calls to BFG to find out what the
problem is. The tires are not flat spotted and the temps were not high
enough to blister. There is definately a problem with the tires. The
"veterans" said it looked like I was running under 20 lbs from the way
the tire was chunking. When I told them what the pressure really was,
they could not understand it at all. Does anybody have any ideas?
Goin to the Nats!
